  1. Low-Noise Detector Arrays for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate near infrared (NIR) InGaAs sensor arrays with 55% lower noise than arrays presently available to improve the sensitivity of current spectroscopy systems. The low noise performance will be enabled by the use of low-noise source follower per detector ROICs, which are also used in astronomy with HgCdTe for low noise measurements. With design improvements to current available ...

  2. Design and Realization of a Dual Function OCM/MPM for Imaging TEMPs

    SBC: Distant Focus Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Regenerative medicine is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that will result in new engineered medical products. The introduction of a high-resolution, non-destructive imaging technique that is capable of penetrating deeply into the highly-scattering scaffold medium has the means to accelerate the development and commercial utilization of these novel materials. Multi-photon microscopy (MPM) is b ...

  3. Holographic Light-Emitting Diode-Based Solar Simulator

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NIST is seeking a large area solar simulator to overcome the shortcomings of current solar simulators. To meet this need, Physical Optics Corp. (POC) proposed to develop a new Holographic Light-Emitting-Diode-Based Solar Simulator (HOLIOS) based on holographic gratings, holographic diffuser, high-power light emitting diodes with electronic drivers, collimating and projection optics, and photodetec ...

  4. Imaging Variable Kinetic Energy Electron Analyzer

    SBC: R. Browning Consultants            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to create a prototype imaging variable kinetic energy electron analyzer in the range 0.1 to 8 keV for use with an X-ray excitation source. The imaging analyzer is to have a target imaging spatial resolution of 100 nm. The X-ray excitation source will be a synchrotron light source. The instrument can be described as an X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) microsc ...

  5. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    Special operation forces utilize C-130 aircraft that often operate in night/adverse weather, low-level, deep-penetration missions in contested or hostile environments. These low altitude missions result in higher risks to the crew and aircraft. AeroVironment proposes to leverage their current packaged and air-launched unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developments to design a self-contained, packaged ...

  6. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  7. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    The Navy, the academic oceanographic community and the oil industry have embraced the use of underwater acoustic modems to take advantage of the many benefits that wireless operation brings to their applications. In this proposed SBIR effort, HLS Research Inc will take advantage of the resources already present in an acoustic modem, namely the acoustic pressure sensors and the signal processing ca ...

  8. Advanced Tactical Threat Warning Radio

    SBC: NETWORKFAB CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05008

    In today's tactical areas of operation, signal threat detection is one of the integral aspects of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is a need for the ability to detect enemy communications (known and unknown) and DF on their locations. Additionally, SOF units have a critical need for short range tactical communications to stay in contact with other uni ...

  9. Digital Electronic Scanning Holographic Particles Sensor

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM05009

    To address the U.S. SOCOM need for a particle sensor and monitoring/warning system to be integrated into aircraft engine air inlets and air intakes to environmental control systems (ECSs), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Digital Electronic Scanning Holographic (DESH) particle sensor. The proposed DESH sensor is based on real-time digital holography (electronic holograp ...
